Hulu turned down a reality show it would have hosted Sean'Diddy' Combs and your family.

It is claimed the TV show, tentatively titled Diddy + 7, was dropped due to sexual assault allegations made against the musician and father of seven.

Production company Fulwell 73, owned by James Corden and four other partners, was in the early stages of the project when Hulu decided to withdraw interest, reports Deadline.

Last month, the 54-year-old was accused of rape and violent behavior in legal documents by his ex-girlfriend, Cassie – whose real name is Casandra Ventura – but the allegations were resolved the following day and he denied any wrongdoing.

In the original lawsuit, it was alleged that Cassie, whose real name is Casandra Ventura, was raped “in her own home after she tried to leave him” and “endured more than a decade of his violent behavior and deranged demands.”

The lawsuit contained a rare trigger warning up front due to the extreme nature of the allegations.

Ventura was 19 when she met Combs and alleged that he began a pattern of abuse and controlling behavior that included “beating her, using her with drugs, and forcing her to have sex with prostitutes while Combs filmed.”

Combs' attorney, Ben Brafman, denied any wrongdoing on his behalf in a statement.

He said The mirror: “Just to be clear, the decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing.”

While Combs said: 'We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.'

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

He was then the subject of a second lawsuit amid allegations he drugged and raped a college student.

An unidentified woman became the third to speak out, alleging that rapper and singer-songwriter Aaron Hall took turns recording her and a friend before “choking her in a violent rage.”

In the fourth lawsuit in just a few weeks, another woman – known only as Jane Doe – alleged she was attacked by the music mogul when she was a teenager.

The outlet reports that she alleged she was raped by Combs and two other people, including Harve Pierre, the former president of her company Bad Boy Entertainment — who was named in a separate lawsuit over allegations of sexual assault and grooming.

“Seeing two other women courageously speak out against Mr. Combs and Mr. Pierre, respectively, gave Ms. Doe the confidence to tell her story as well,” the paperwork states via Variety.

Combs, whose hit songs include I'll Miss You, No One Can Hold Me Down and Give Me Love, has since shared a statement on social media, vehemently denying all of the allegations made against him.

'That's enough. Over the past few weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy,” he wrote.

'Disgusting allegations were made against me by individuals seeking a quick payment.

'Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the horrible things that are being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and the truth.'
